Default Code P1796, Help

I hooked up the OBII scanner up to the Jag because the check engine light came on and got the code P1796, which indicates a kick down switch circuit malfunction, can anyone tell me what needs to be done to correct this problem?

P1796 Vehicle Speed Signal Short To Ground

Sounds like one of the wheel or trans output sensors is bad.

My bad, you must have an 04 or 05 X type with that code....
Book say's it's a CAN network fault.

Wire in CAN network malfunction.
Sounds like a bad wire from the trans to ECM....I can't get any more info....sorry

Default Code 1796

Hello from Calgary Canada

I have just bought a 2004 x type Jaguar 2.5 L automatic and in the two hours I have driven it my check engine light went on. I have no ability to kick down at high speed and I have a code P 1796 and P0 333. i tried to reset codes but my cheap Autel code reader would not clear the codes. When I tried to reset the codes. The transmission failsafe came on and I just had 4th gear. When I removed code reader and let sit then re started car the car was not in failsafe mode and shifted fine check engine light was still on however.

Transmission failsafe only came on again when I tried to reset codes with reader. I did notice the following when I drove the car after I started the car again back to normal with Check engine light up shifting no problem but no kick down for fast acceleration. down shifting was a littler erratic however.

i have a 2004 but It was and early on so I am wondering if it is kick down switch as I have this symptom.

Any help is appreciated
